This methodology is satisfying to me and to my class for many reasons:
students and I will be stimulated to communicate and to express ourselves in English, without bothering about grammar
the exercises and some tests will be proposed in a cooperative- learning situation
students will improve their abilities in communication and in understanding each other
students will be encouraged to catch and to express the central meaning of an oral or written text .
From a language point of view the CLIL 'approach' contains nothing new to the EL teacher language. What is different is that the language teacher is also the subject teacher, or that the subject teacher is also able to exploit opportunities for developing language skills. This is the essence of the C ontent and L anguage I ntegrated L earning.
